Невзирая на старшего раввина, один из многих других раввинов нашей синагоги организовал добровольную народную дружину самозащиты, в которую я, естественно, влился. Планируется перенимание опыта у других, старших дружин района.

Дошло, что boys will be boys

Статья о всяких группах для хипстеров и прочих просветлённых духом. Автор в какой-то момент поняла, что все эти проверившие свою привилегию прогрессивные феминисты мужского пола по-прежнему любят глазеть на женщин:

“I don’t know what it is, but I’ve noticed that if there’s an event with nakedness, the majority of people who turn up will be older guys.”

As a journalist writing about weird workshops and unusual classes I’ve covered cuddle parties, rope-binding, naked yoga, and tantra, to name but a few. These classes are popular with the hipsters ... these “alternative” workshops are simply a way for apparently progressive men to gawp at women—lap dancing clubs for the woke.

... in reality, these workshops predominantly appeal to men who attend in the hope of touching women, staring at naked women, and—best case scenario—touching naked women.

These men are often older, usually single, left-leaning middle-class guys who sometimes sport a man-bun and a big, bushy beard—lubricated with artisan beard-oil—along with loose cotton trousers. They’re the kind of guys who performatively check their privilege, and who take it upon themselves to supervise the privilege-checking of others. They think of themselves as progressive or woke—most certainly nice. But these men are not that different to the guys who go to a strip club and pay £20 for women to grind their butts in their faces. It might seem like a stretch, but having carried out an undercover investigation into the lap dancing industry, I think the biggest difference is that paying for a lap dance is a more honest transaction.
